November 1 – 26
We’re Giving Away Tickets!
The Del Mar Racetrack is open for the Bing Crosby season from November 1 to 26, when it will host the famous Breeders’ Cup for the first time in racing history. The Bing Crosby season offers attendees a chance to cheer on magnificent thoroughbreds as they compete in stakes races, handicaps and the Hollywood Derby. Eight to ten races take place during each day of the season. The season kicks off with the Opening Day Vintage Hollywood Fashion Contest on November 1.
The highly anticipated Breeders’ Cup debuts at Del Mar Racetrack on November 3 and 4. The Breeders’ Cup features some of the world’s greatest racehorses and attracts both celebrities and the local community for a day filled with fashion, parties and thrilling competition. There are 15 celebrity ambassadors this year, including Kate Upton, Bobby Flay, Elizabeth Banks and Toby Keith.
Beyond world-class thoroughbred sport, Del Mar is known for its exciting lineup of concerts, food and beer festivals, giveaways and seminars with top racing folks. The Roots perform on November 11, which is followed by Reggae Fest featuring Iration on November 18. A couple of food festivals also complement the season. Additional weekend fun includes dining events, such as Daybreak at Del Mar on Saturdays and Taste of the Turf Club on Sundays, and Free and Fun Sundays, which offers free stretch run admission, seat and program, as well as half-price drinks.
Del Mar’s Family Fun Run is a great way to start the Thanksgiving holiday on November 23 at 8am. The races start at 11am and two special menus are available during the day: a mouth-watering brunch or turkey dinner with all the trimmings. The festivities are followed by Helen Woodward’s puppy run and adoption event.
